The paper 'Experience on Everest Simulation " is a good example of a management case study. This report was commissioned to critically evaluate the experience of Everest Simulation in terms of learning at both individual and group. This report has managed to evaluate the role of learning both at individual and group levels. Communication was considered as the key source of success for this summit. This is because it is through communication that the team was able to agree on the way forward as well as communicate with teammates on important matters.
The report has also managed to establish that there are various factors that influence the success or failure process which include: decision-making process, team spirit, prediction and accessibility and analysis of information. The report has also found that in terms of leadership, there are various functions that leadership is responsible for which include: resource mobilization, project Plan, ability to inspire team vision, proper communication and competence. Finally, this report has managed to conclude by looking at some of the important lessons that have been learned with regard to learning and management based on the Everest simulation experience. 1.0 Introduction Learning is an important process in an individual life.
This is because it helps one develop effective ways of thinking, reasoning, perceiving and interpreting issues under various contexts. Learning is considered very vital both for individual and team or group development. The use of simulation is one of the important strategies that are considered essential in supporting the learning process. Simulation helps individuals develop individual and group management skills. Some of the important skills that are developed through simulation include: building teams, playing in teams, managing teams, making good group and individual decisions, solving problems and formulating strategies on how to go about different challenges and dispatching information (Barnes 2004).
In an ideal environment and personal lives, people are faced with various challenges that may originate from the person or the group itself or from outside. In management, internal challenges may include a lack of enough resources to execute different plans. On the contrary, the challenges that are external include competition and change in technology among many others. Our experience in the web-based Leadership and Team Simulation:
